We went here for dinner based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. We were greeted immediately and the place had quite a lively atmosphere. I had the mussels in white sauce (sauce of the day), my husband had the Udon noodles. We both enjoyed ours meals! Also the bartender made a delicious Cosmo!

A good buzzy place for breakfast, lunch or dinner with a pleasant atmosphere. Good selection of food and drinks and good service. We went as a large group and were well attended and the food was very good.

We reached Nobles following a guide found in tripadvisor. The food was great in quality, though the "Confit Trout" was too small in quantity. However it was tasty and the other starter, the "Roasted Cauliflower" made our delights. We ended with the "Corn Fed Chicken"' which was amazing. Everything with some pints of the pale ale "Bad Day at the... More

Had a great meal in this gastro pub. The staff were so helpful and the unique surroundings echo the history of Leith's seafaring past. Definitely definitely going back.

Nobles is a great place for a relaxed dinner. Good food, friendly staff and a lovely decor. This is the second time I've been recently and both occasions have been very pleasant.

Waited a long time to be served by some arrogant tattooed twit who thinks he's one of these rockstar bartenders... very rude and snappy laughed at my friend when he asked if they sold any Beavertown, he started barking on about how it's a brand and they do many types and you would need to be more specific! a general...

My partner had the eggs nobles and I had the eggs benedict. Have to say I loved mine but his was absolutely amazing. I ordered... More

As a special treat we decided to visit Nobles again for their fish n' chips. We weren't disappointed. The batter around the fish is light and crispy with no under cooked batter lingering between the fish and batter. The staff gave us 5 minutes into our meal then checked in that everything was good. Happy to report Everything was great.
